Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Medical Judgment by Richard L. Mabry, M.D.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dr. Sarah Gordon lost her husband and daughter. Now she's about to lose her life.

After losing the two people she loved the most, Sarah Gordon doesn't think life could get worse. But, after a fire in her garage is ruled an arson, she begins to realize someone is after her---and that person wants to see her dead. But first, they want to see her suffer.

Her late husband's best friend, Kyle Andrews, and a recovering alcoholic detective, Bill Larson, are trying to solve the mystery before it's too late, and they're both trying to win her heart, too. Not only does Sarah feel torn between two men, she also feels as though she cannot trust anyone.

With creepy threats that become more and more sinister, Sarah finds herself in constant fear, but even the best home alarm technology won't protect her. Who is doing this, and why are they after her?

This is the first book I've read by this author and there were a few things I liked and a few things I didn't care for.

I felt like the mystery was fairly well done with plenty of suspenseful situations and several characters introduced that could be the stalker.  And I liked the character of Dr. Sarah Gordon, who is struggling to move on with her life after the tragic death of her husband and daughter. After somewhat restoring her relationship with God, she also gets fed up with her stalker and shows her own strength by making a stand. I admired that about her character.

However, I really didn't like the two main male characters. They both thought about having feelings for Sarah but the one was pushy about it and the other character was still thinking about getting back with his divorced wife. And the romance that happened toward the end of the book was almost unbelievable. It would have had more depth if it had started earlier in the book.

There are a lot of 5 & 4 star reviews for this book so others obviously enjoyed it more than I did but all in all, I guess this writing style just didn't appeal to me.
